New Bigfire Restaurant Brings Fireside Dining To Universal CityWalk This Summer

Share this post:

This summer, we’ve got you covered for a relaxing night out with delicious open-fire cooking. Bigfire – the newest, full-service restaurant that draws inspiration from the nostalgia of cooking over open flames during memorable family vacations – will leave you feeling as though you have stepped into a lakeside summer house, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of summer evenings spent by the water, surrounded by family and friends.

THE THEME

This two-story venue will feature natural design elements of mix and matched fabrics and seating, cast iron, twinkling lights, camp lanterns – and even a canoe suspended from the overhead rafters – to complete the outdoor ambience inside the restaurant. We can’t think of a better way to unwind after a fun-filled day in the parks.

THE FOOD

At the heart of the venue will be a custom wood fire grill where chefs will prepare signature dishes inspired by the style of open-fire cooking – but with a significant and modern twist.

Inspired by the way food would be prepared on an open campfire, chefs will carefully match each food with wood species that have been carefully chosen based on the flavor they exude, resulting in delectable dishes, sides, desserts – and even cocktails – that all infuse the smoky spirits. The pairings will add bold flavors to create elevated American fare, including a signature bison burger, coffee, chili and cocoa rubbed top sirloin, delectable freshwater trout, mouth-watering smoked salads and more.

    If there’s anything gluten free on the menu I’m there!

    • Hi Lainie! We do not have that information just yet, but continue to monitor our social media pages as well as our website for more information.

      I really hope there will be! I am excited to go there but I’ll be even more excited if there is a specific gluten free menu.

    Cannot wait for this place to open!!! We need a good replacement for Emerils

    Hopefully this place will be a little more upmarket, I hope so…..we need a good seafood and steak restaurant within Citywalk.
    So looking forward to trying this place out……

    Will this restaurant require reservations?

    I hope there’s table-side smores on the desert menu. This would fit in perfectly with the theme.

    Can’t wait, remember it being built when my family and I were their last year. At least you can enjoy the city walk for free. Thank you.
